Essentially, they are pretty much the same, it's just a matter of nuance. When you say "we should" it's more of a recommendation and the emphasis is on "us". While when you say "we are expected", it's more of a strong recommendation, like something bad will happen if we don't and the emphasis is on the other person waiting for us. Hope this was helpful! :)

no, obviously it is not the same! we're expected means somebody is waiting for us and so on...! and "should" is something between choice and rule.
